GIVE TIL IT HURTS!

Good show!

I know I said yesterday that the animal-rights whackjobs chaining themselves by their chicken-necks to an active conveyor belt was the feel-good story of the week, and I meant that too. But suddenly, a new contender has emerged.


In the vid, after his near-thing brush with becoming sticky red goo, one of the candidates for a Darwin Golden Achievement Award whimpers, “what’s wrong with that guy?” To which I respond: nothing whatsoever, roadkill. The only wrong thing here is you and your insufferably smug compadres, not the poor working stiff just trying to earn an honest, honorable, and entirely legal living for himself and his family, a thing I strongly suspect your ilk knows little if anything about.

Then comes the anguished bleat “HE’S A LUNATIC!!” Well, somebody certainly is, yeah. But it ain’t the truck driver; he’s had just about a bellyfull of your juvenile-delinquent bullshit, and decided he just wasn’t gonna put up with another second of it. Like the rest of us saner sorts are similarly fed up, and will have to show a little “activist” initiative of our own if we ever hope to be rid of you.

Indeed. Lately, it seems as if there’s another new Lord Of The Idiots title-seeker popping up every five minutes or so.

Lifestyles of the rich and famous drunk and weird

Yep, a Grindr date gone bad, that’s what this was.


There’s nothing about this that doesn’t look weird, Sebastian. A shit-circus, a freakshow, a maelstrom in a madhouse, that’s what.

I look forward to the rioting

Just another poor innocent Dindu beaten to death by the cops.

Local Memphis Looter-American Tyre Nichols, who wuz a good boy and dindu nuffin wrong, was nevertheless beset upon by five fellow Looter-American po-leece who engaged in a little pre-trial punitive action, allegedly beating him so badly that he died a few days later.

This be Tyre, the usual smiling face and dressed up picture families always find.

Tyre was apparently pulled over for reckless driving and then took off. At some point all five of the fellas got in some licks on Tyre and he was in critical condition when he was taken to a local hospital where he subsequently died. For good measure two members of the Memphis Fire Department were also fired for reasons I haven’t seen yet.

The video of what happened is set to be released tomorrow night apparently. It seems like a great idea to release a video of a black dude being beaten to death on a Friday night, I am sure that famous self-control will keep a lid on things. A local news report quoting an attorney for the family claims he was beaten for three minutes by the cops, which doesn’t sound like a long time unless you are the one getting beaten by five dudes. The same local news story claims that at least some of the cops involved were part of a special police unit…

Some of the officers involved have been identified as belonging to an MPD unit called SCORPION, which stands for Street Crimes Operation to Restore Peace in Our Neighborhoods.

The unit launched in November 2021 and focuses on preventing auto theft and gang-related violence and was structured to have some coordination with the Multi-Agency Gang Unit.

I guess they restored some peace that night. I expect the video is going to show at least five cops going apeshit on this guy, and while there isn’t an excuse for beating someone to death I do hope that the entire video is played to see what led up to his death.

Regardless of what the video shows, you can be sure this is all somehow my fault.

Well, I mean, DUH. Ahh, but there’s something of an unanticipated twist to this particular story, one you’ll want to click on over to Arthur’s place to find out about.

Chimpout update! And so it begins.

WATCH: Tyre Nichols protesters block freeway traffic in Memphis

‘Stand up, fight back,’ Tyre Nichols protesters shout as they block traffic on a freeway bridge

MEMPHIS – Tyre Nichols protesters blocked traffic on a Memphis freeway Friday night after video was released showing police beating the young Black man as they attempted to arrest him.

“Stand up, fight back,” the protesters chanted on the I-55 bridge, video captured by Fox News shows.

Protesters gathered and marched after an hour of video footage was released showing police beat Nichols. The 29-year-old was hospitalized after the encounter, but died three days later.

“We shuttin’ it down,” one protester can be heard shouting.

“By any means necessary,” another said.

Dey be demandin’ jussis ’n’sheeeit, yo. Looting to follow, although the article notes that businesses in downtown Memphis have wisely boarded up their street-level windows in anticipation of the impending conflagration.

Updated chimpout update! Wilder comments thusly, and I quote:

Wow! Nike shoes, 100% off!

Thanks, Tadarrius!

What can one say but: Heh.

Fanning the flames update! Glenn quips:

Here we have a black man, killed by black officers in a majority-black city run by Democrats, the offending police have all been charged and the authorities seem to be taking the crime quite seriously, but everyone expects riots all over because…well, just because.

I don’t suppose the news media have anything to do with that.

No, of course not. Perish the thought.


But…but…but…all the best people have long assured me that it is literally impossible for any black person to be Rayciss™! If the hypocritical jackwagons couldn’t contradict themselves twelve times before lunch every day, they’d be left entirely unable to speak at all.

And now for something completely different!

After story after story demonstrating that the po-po are NOT on our side, this makes quite a refreshing change.

NYPD at New York City Police Department (2001–present)Updated 4y

As a police officer, what is one instance where you couldn’t decide whether to arrest someone or let them go?

Once my partner and I responded to a call of a shoplifter. It was a 16-year-old girl who had stolen a scientific calculator. We called her dad and he began crying for shame over the phone. He said that she has SATs the next day and despite him working very hard to support his family, he could not afford the calculator. She told us the same thing. The store manager said that corporate policy mandated him to press charges. With a heavy heart, we brought her in. Somehow that paperwork got so botched that the case never made it to court and was dismissed (oops!). Also, on our way out of the store, my partner and I purchased that calculator. We knew someone who needed it.

Awww. Good on ya and your fellows, officer.

The last American hero

Verily, a man among men.

Over the moon! Buzz Aldrin marries on his 93rd birthday: Astronaut legend ties the knot for a fourth time as he shares sweet photos with new bride Anca Faur, 63

The second man on the moon has married for a fourth time, with astronaut legend Buzz Aldrin announcing he’d wed his longtime girlfriend on his birthday.

Mr Aldrin, who turned 93 on Friday and was part of the historic first-ever moon landing mission, made the sweet announcement to his new bride, who is 30 years his junior, on his Twitter account. 

‘On my 93rd birthday & the day I will also be honored by Living Legends of Aviation I am pleased to announce that my longtime love Dr. Anca Faur & I have tied the knot. We were joined in holy matrimony in a small private ceremony in Los Angeles & are as excited as eloping teenagers.’

Dr Faur, 63, currently works as the Executive Vice President of Buzz Aldrin Ventures LLC, with her LinkedIn page listing her as having worked for the company since 2019.

What a badass. There are photos, and Buzz still looks great. No word at post time on whether he gave any pesky, moonshot-denier punk-ass bitches in the vicinity that patented Aldrin right cross straight in the fucking mush. But no matter; we’ll always have the memories.

Schweeeet. WeirdDave also hips us to this gem:

I’ve heard stories that Buzz and Neil Armstrong used to tell each other really unfunny jokes about being on the moon at parties, and when they were greeted with an awkward silence they’d say “Well, I guess you had to be there”.

Heh. Yep, like I said: badass. Happy birthday to you, Buzz. May you and your lovely bride enjoy many happy years together.

Hot time in Hot-lanta

I hate to say it, but given how PDs all over the country mollycoddled, shielded, and ran active interference for pAntiFa marauders over the past cpl-three Mostly Peaceful summers, I guess we can only root for casualties on this one.

ANDY NGO REPORTS: Seven charged with domestic terrorism following deadly shooting at Atlanta autonomous zone

Seven militants have been arrested and charged with domestic terrorism following a deadly shootout with law enforcement at their “autonomous zone” in a wooded area south of Atlanta. They are all from out of state.

On Wednesday morning, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies conducted a raid on the so-called autonomous zone at the site of the future Atlanta Public Safety Training Center. Since June 2021, Antifa and other far-left extremists from across the US have occupied the area to prevent the construction of what they call a “cop city.” The GBI says a Georgia State Patrol trooper was shot and severely injured during Wednesday’s raid by a man camped in the area. Officers returned fire and killed the gunman, who allegedly used a pistol.

Georgia’s Department of Public Safety will not name the injured patrol trooper, saying it would “compromise security against criminal or terroristic acts due to retaliation,” but told local media he was in the ICU after having emergency surgery. The deceased gunman was named on Thursday by the GBI as 26-year-old Manuel Esteban Paez Teran. He used the alias “Tort” and “Tortuguita.”

“Manuel used they/it pronouns…please make sure we are remembering them properly and respectfully,” wrote the Atlanta Community Press Collective in their statement revealing the shooter’s identity.

Following the shooting, the GBI and its law enforcement partners continued to clear the autonomous zone and several arrests were made of suspects—all of whom are from out of state. The GBI say they confiscated a cache of weapons that include mortar-style fireworks and edged weapons.

Matthew Ernest Macar, 30, Spencer Bernard Liberto, 29, and Sarah Wasilewski, 35, all from Pittsburgh, are each facing charges of domestic terrorism and aggravated assault upon a public safety officer.

Liberto and Wasilewski appear to be in a relationship based on their social media photos and posts. Both have a long history of radical leftist politics. Wasilewski’s Twitter account also shows that she follows Antifa groups and the “@defendatlantaforest” account, which is the main social media group representing the autonomous zone. She also frequently liked posts from the far-left violent extremist Pittsburgh group, Filler Distro. Filler Distro is one of several groups calling for violent retribution against law enforcement over the death of their comrade.

Street justice

Andrea Widburg on a phenomenon that, as Feral lawlessness continues to go unpunished, we’ll be seeing more and more of: vigilantism.

VIDEOS: Americans step up because the police aren’t there

Last week, a video made the rounds showing what happened to a man who entered a restaurant, waved a gun around (later shown to be fake), and demanded people’s valuables. That’s a common enough occurrence nowadays, but this one went viral when one of the customers, recognizing that a criminal pointing a gun at others poses an imminent threat to life, shot the man…again and again and again.

Most people agree that the initial shots were righteous, but there’s debate about the last shot when it appeared that the threat the robber presented had been neutralized. However, we really don’t know whether the robber was still a threat. After all, we’ve all seen videos of bad guys absorbing round after round and still killing or wounding people. (E.g., here.) The law allows citizens to keep defending themselves as long as necessary.

Two more videos of citizens taking action have emerged. One is wonderfully amusing because it shows Guitar Center employees in Phoenix unceremoniously throwing out a would-be thief…

The second video shows people corralling a would-be purse snatcher. When he makes a break for freedom, a woman who had a gun trained on him shoots him in the back as he flees. Under the classic American standard, unless she can colorably claim that he still posed an imminent threat as he fled, she’s in trouble.

The vid:


Another example of what I call a Righteous Shoot™, to my way of thinking. But hey, maybe that’s just me. In practical terms, though, it really isn’t going to matter.

Regardless of the shot’s righteousness, this is another example of what happens when citizens feel they’re on their own. In Houston and El Paso, crime in Texas has run rampant, and the authorities are doing nothing to protect law-abiding citizens. So, again, citizens will protect themselves.

As they should, and in fact must. There is no innate moral obligation that requires decent, law-abiding people to docilely put up with being preyed upon indefinitely. That obligation is instead part of an unwritten, informal charter we used to call the social contract. And when the authorities once entrusted with its enforcement tacitly renege, it can be revoked. And it will be. Gonna be pretty tough on the Dindus, I’m afraid, but here as always the FAFO rules apply. When Normals realize that legal justice is no longer available to them, then street justice will be all they have left.

Talking sense to Woke

I’ve seen the vid recommended several places but didn’t watch it, hoping some sort of at least partial transcript might eventually become available. Well, one has.

Comedian Konstantin Kisin’s Oxford Debate Speech Was Epic, Signaling That WOKE May Finally Be Going, ‘Bye, Bye’

Konstantin Kisin is a satirist, podcaster, author and political commentator and on his “Triggernometry” podcast, he and his co-host Francis Foster focus on these subjects, as well as the WOKE culture that has overtaken the Western world.

At 40, Kisin is an early Millennial (or Xennial, as they are now being categorized). So, he has lived some life, had a taste of career success, and has a family. Some of the things that indicate that your views on how life and the economy works is not merely theoretical. Kisin also was born in Russia and emigrated to Europe, domiciling in Great Britain. So, he has not always benefited from living in the Western petri dishes where WOKENESS germinates and takes hold.

Which is what makes him, and this debate speech he gave at The Oxford Union Society so compelling. The Oxford Union is a membership club that encourages debate among its members as well as celebrity, political, and guest speakers. Kisin was debating, Resolved: Has Woke Culture Gone Too Far? And Kisin’s epic counter response is the reason this video is getting so much play.

Kisin started his treatise by expressing that he is tired of talking about WOKE culture and its targeted attacks to destroy freedom of speech, as well as its false flag operations to create “equity,” which is merely racism in a cheap jacket:

“I am so tired of talking about Woke culture. That’s why it’s gone too far more than anything else.

[…]

“No, No, Free speech is not some right-wing reframing of whatever, it’s the foundation of Western civilization. Upon which this civilization is built and the alignment values that led to it.

“The only way to deal with the problem of racism is to treat people on the content of their character. And nothing else. And the fact that WOKE culture seeks to overturn that is a new form of racism that we must all oppose.”

Kisin warned that we will destroy ourselves if we continue to allow this erosion of our culture and our confidence in Western values.

Then Kisin turned his focus on Climate Change, directing his speech toward Millennials and Gen Z—at least the ones who he felt might be, “open to rational argument.” Although he knew he was speaking to young people who honor their feelings above any rational truth, Kisin made this fact-based point.

“[Climate Change will be decided] by poor people in Asia and Latin America who don’t care about saving the planet—because they’re poor.”

Kind of hard being concerned about the future of the planet, when your future only extends to your next meal.

Publick Notice

Since the native WP posting editor has begun to suck so horribly, and my reliable third-party standby for years, Ecto, doesn’t work at all with the new/old iMac’s decrepit operating system, I’ve been casting desperately about for months now in search of another blog-posting alternative that will run on this infernal machine. This casting about led me to download MarsEdit for a test run to see how it might suit.

I’m thrilled to find that it does indeed support custom macros, which is one of the primary things I loved about Ecto and have been missing most. Unfortunately, after a 14 day trial run I’m required to buy the damned software at a hefty 60 bucks, which after having shelled out 39.99 for Ecto already sticks in my craw pretty badly. If I understand things correctly, I can still use ME to write posts and store them locally, I just can’t actually upload ’em to the ol’ websty without purchasing a license first.

We’ll see what transpires on all that hoo-ha, I reckon, but for the moment I gotta say I’m thoroughly loving MarsEdit. In addition to downloading all my posts, categories, and pages from WP on CF’s server, it also grabbed all the media files I’ve embedded in past posts as well, something Ecto didn’t do. That means I’ll have a complete archive of everything but the actual database files ready to hand in case those Russian hackers get frisky and make another run at Ye Humble Blogge again.

Lots of new-to-me features with this ME thing too, some of which look likely to be right handy. Maybe I need to consider holding another fundraiser hereabouts when my 14-day trial period is about to expire…

Update!  Aw yeah, this thing rocks for sure. SOOOO much better than that never-to-be-sufficiently-damned WP posting editor. Need to find some kind of YT embed next, see how that goes. Stand by…

KNOCKED OUT update! Man oh MAN, is this MarsEdit software amazing! Had I known about it before tonight, I woulda switched off from Ecto years ago.

See, in both the Ecto and ME main window, the main window shows a list of previous posts up top, below which is a preview of whatever post you click on and highlight. Well sir, I just learned that, with ME, you can download your blog’s theme template to be used for the preview. With Ecto, you could customize your preview template, but it was a right pain in the arse to do, so I never did bother with it.

This handy-dandy feature could well mitigate the need for me to hold off doing all the proofreading and editing until after the post has gone live, which is a good thing. Screen grab:

CF ME grab

Brilliant, no? Turns out, MarsEdit’s built-in Upload Utility allows you to resize the image, reformat it, &c before you even upload it, bypassing the need to further fool around as is required by the infernal WP editor. Yeah, it’s definitely looking more and more as if I need to come up with the sixty simoleons for this little gem.

Fucked around. Found out

Recent events would seem to indicate that ordinary Americans are just about fed the fuck UP with lawlessness, theft without repercussion, and random scumbaggery.


When I forwarded this to him via text message, habitual commenter brack said: “The collar/belt buckle heave-ho into the trash can is priceless.” I couldn’t agree more with that assessment. This post is going into the “Art” category, among others, because that fast-takedown is a true thing of beauty.

Ignore illegal orders

In Illinois, of all places.

Some Illinois Sheriffs Say Departments Will Not Comply With Assault Weapon Registration Requirements

As potential legal fights percolate over Illinois’ new assault weapons ban, law enforcement officials in several counties have said that their departments will not enforce provisions of the bill that require existing weapons to be registered with the State Police.

Their arguments center around their stance that the bill, which makes it illegal for Illinois residents to purchase, transfer or manufacture assault weapons and extended magazines, violates the Second Amendment.

McHenry County Sheriff Robb Tadelman was one of numerous law enforcement officials throughout the state who shared messages on social media in the aftermath of the bill’s passage.

“Neither myself nor my office will be checking to ensure that lawful gun owners register their weapons with the state, nor will we be arresting or housing law abiding individuals that have been charged solely with non-compliance with this act,” he said.

Many of those law enforcement officials shared identical messages, including Kankakee County Sheriff Mike Downey, Sheriff Jack Harlan in Boone County and Winnebago County Sheriff Gary Caruana.

In a statement, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s office called the messages “political grandstanding at its worst,” and said that sheriffs and departments that refuse to enforce the ban are “in violation of their oath of office.”

Au contraire, you rat-bastard prick; YOU are. Heartfelt kudos to these fine fellows; clearly, they understand their oath of office, the US Constitution, and their solemn and sacred duty to uphold it a damned sight better than their shitlib Goobernor ever will, or could.

Success story

Doing the jobs Repugnicants just won’t do.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is taking another victory lap, highlighting all his’ Free State of Florida”  2022 accomplishments (wins), including his hurricane response, protecting parental rights, investing in teachers and higher education, and combatting the “woke society” he has been pushing back against since first taking office in 2019.

Here is Gov. DeSantis complete outline of his “Free State of Florida” wins:

It is indeed a long, long list, reinforcing my fervent hope that he won’t waste any time and energy running for Prexy in ’24. He’s gotten way more worthwhile things accomplished as Governor than he’ll ever be allowed to while besieged in the Oval Orifice. Such as this, which didn’t make the list.

Gov. DeSantis taps Christopher Rufo, 5 others to transform New College of Florida into ‘classical college’

The DeSantis administration wants to model New College on Hillsdale College.

Gov. Ron DeSantis has appointed conservative activist Christopher Rufo and five others to the New College of Florida Board of Trustees in his continuing move to eliminate “political ideology” from public higher education.

With the six new members of the school’s Board of Trustees, the DeSantis administration plans to weed out concepts like diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and critical race theory (CRT). The move comes amid low student enrollment at the New College of Florida and as DeSantis ramps up his second term.

In a statement Friday, DeSantis Communications Director Taryn Fenskesaid New College has been “completely captured by a political ideology that puts trendy, truth-relative concepts above learning.”

“Starting today, the ship is turning around,” DeSantis Press Secretary Bryan Griffin continued. “New College of Florida, under the Governor’s new appointees, will be refocused on its founding mission of providing a world-class quality education with an exceptional focus on the classics.”

Rufo, along with several of his fellow appointees, has been a driving force in the movement against CRT.

“I’m proud to announce that Gov. Ron DeSantis has appointed me to the Board of Trustees of the New College of Florida,” Rufo tweeted. “My ambition is to help the new board majority transform New College into a classical liberal arts institution. We are recapturing higher education.”

Others appointed Friday are Emory University professor Mark Bauerlein, Claremont-McKenna College professor Charles Kesler, attorney Debra Jenks and Inspiration Academy Co-Founder Jason “Eddie” Speir.

Rounding out the list is Matthew Spalding, dean of Hillsdale College D.C. campus’ Graduate School of Government. Hillsdale College is a private conservative liberal arts college that the DeSantis administration is referencing as its model for transforming New College.

You go, Gov.

Applying logic to right and wrong

Billy Beck deftly and dispassionately does so, in the case of the Houston taqueria Righteous Shoot™.

Understanding what politics is and what this ex post facto interest of the state has to do with the event, it’s not unduly simplified or complicated for me to score the thing:

  1. Ethically: strictly none of my business, but interesting as a matter of values in action.
  2. Practically: adept at dealing with the combat challenge.
  3. Politically: admirably self-organized.

In the first category, I merely observe from a distance that the two main characters in the event are acting for values. I am not doing that, except in valuing my own judgments of the event. That’s very different: it’s not the ultimate value of my life at stake as I do that at my leisure. More: who prevails in a combat like that is of no real concern to me, beyond moral contemplation of its resolution. This is of great political importance to me when the state titles its criminal indictments as, “The People vs …” It has no right to arbitrarily include me in something like that without knowledge of my interest, which I always implicitly disclaim.

On the evidence available, which I take as immutable: even if lived in Houston, or even if I had been in the same room when this happened, I would not regard the man who shot that robber as a general threat at-large. Everything reported about this demands my opposite judgement. He even returned the robbed money to the other victims before he left the scene. It’s a crabbed view of any proceeding toward “justice” that would want to question an ethic like that, and I reserve my right to stay out of it.

In the second category, the shooter demonstrated aptitude with his pistol and the mental fortitude required for its intended use in that situation.

Right away: I dismiss the fact that the robber brandished a “fake” weapon. Certainly, this cannot be known to prospective victims. That’s the whole point of the deceit: if they know it’s not real, then they just won’t do what he’s trying to force them to do. Nobody would. To anyone with intent and ability to defend against a handgun threat, that threat is absolutely real at the instant it appears, and then: the narrow margin between reason and force can be crossed at the speed of thought.

In close-quarters handgun combat, this can happen with a flick-of-the-wrist and about 800 feet-per-second when the shot goes off. I bear in mind that we’re not talking about any of the “honor” images of two men squaring-off for a gunfight, now. It’s explosive flashing mayhem possible as fast as a barrel can line-up from any angle at any instant, with every possibility of deception with motion or words to conceal it. This robber was manifestly in mental distress, evidence by his frantic and aimless course around the room, fumbling with cash and — most important — casual & reckless handling of his weapon. (Yes; that’s what it was.)

Given these facts, the only rational conclusion (certainly to me and that’s good enough for me), is that whatever is wrong with the robber is bad enough that he can’t be trusted with any doubt that he’ll just start shooting with full intent, nevermind negligent discharge. The Taqueria Defender (yes, that’s what he was) showed admirable grasp of this principle. He can be seen constantly observing tactical facts and implications and preparing to exploit an opportunity to attack the robber with force equal to the deadliness of the threat. I understand that there can be no, “Hey! Stop!” or even “Shoot ‘Em In The Leg” about it. That’s because the flick-of-a-wrist, split-second dynamics of this kind of fight just don’t safely permit that. The concealed weapon must be brought to bear with full commitment to its purpose: to compound the application of force toward success, with surprise.

With all these facts in mind (the “context”), I must applaud The Defender’s actions to save lives from an obvious deadly threat, with clear thinking and commitment.

In the third category, my political considerations rest on my ethics, nothing of which that’s mine is at stake in this event. Over a thousand miles away, I handily managed to avoid harm in the affair. This is where I’ll put The Matter of The Final Shot.

The Defender is seen firing a final shot into (apparently) the head of the robber lying on the floor. Contentions that he may or may not have been a continuing threat at that point do not interest me, principally because I don’t think that’s what was at stake for The Defender, at that moment. I’ll risk conjecture, from available observation and reports of his actions and what certain of those facts must necessarily mean, that The Defender’s stake in that last shot was just good versus evil. It was the difference between a man who could reason-out what’s good for human life and one who could or would not, brought to deadly conflict.

When I consider that ethical complex of premises, I require no further political aspect of the story than that The Defender rides away in his pickup truck. Politics is the branch of philosophy that studies human social organization, and I find this episode of self-organization of good against evil eminently satisfying and conclusive.

As do I, emphatically and wholeheartedly. Rule One (and, in fact, Only) for any Righteous Shooter attempting to stop an evil perp in the act before he injures or kills some innocent someone: You don’t stop shooting until Evil Perp stops moving. In any given situation like this, RS has no way of knowing EP’s gun is fake, nor can he safely assume that EP doesn’t have a REAL gun tucked away in a pocket in case he thinks he might need it at some point. Nor can RS safely assume that, simply because he’s successfully put the worthless sumbitch on the ground, EP is now sufficiently neutralized that he has been thus rendered incapable of raising an arm and shooting someone nonetheless.

Which is precisely why any firearms-training or CCW instructor worthy of his/her salt would tell you: if you MUST shoot, then you MUST shoot to kill. Period, full stop, end of story. Every 2A enthusiast knows this. And now, so does Evil Perp.

Whether the gun was a fake or not? As Billy notes, correctly and appropriately: doesn’t matter. Not in the least, it doesn’t. What DOES matter is that EP had already demonstrated his aggressiveness, hostility, maleficent intentions, and supreme disinterest in the illegality of his actions and the lasting harm he may do to others thereby. That of right ought to be all anybody ever needs to know about the ultimate right and wrong here.

The only reason anybody even found out that RS was packing heat in the first place was because EP the Feral decided, all on his own hook, to menace, assault, and rob innocent people who were just trying to enjoy a quiet dinner or run a business. That decision turned out to be an extremely bad one, one that ended up costing him his life.



I repeat: Fucked around, found out. Tough shit for him. Like most of his oxygen-thief ilk, he wouldn’t have stopped until he’d killed somebody. Good thing he WAS stopped, then.

UNEXPECTED!™

Gee, who knew. Or cared, frankly, but what the hell, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Music legend Morrissey DESTROYS cancel culture in brilliant new statement
Renowned English singer Morrissey on Friday denounced cancel culture in a blog post ripping into those who accuse him of being “far right,” and defending artistry from becoming trapped in the left-wing “monolith.”

The singer, who rose to fame as the lead of rock band The Smiths, took to his own Morrissey Central forum to dispel rumors that pop star Miley Cyrus dropped from his 2022 single “I Am Veronic” due to his politics.

Morrissey went on to say that “Cancel Vultures write only in headlines.”

“The Vultures are usually chief exponents of the hate and harassment which they themselves define as justification for Cancellation of others. Cancel Vultures are unknowable blanks, and they only attack those of whom they are most jealous – because others don’t count. They will not forgive you for being alive, but they will not square up to you face-to-face because they would be forced to look into your eyes…where the wordless truth resides. Worst of all, Cancel Vultures cannot ever apologize for being wrong. This would be worse than death.”

He then added that the “Left changed and deserted” him many years ago, and that he is “most certainly not Far Right.”

“My politics are straightforward: I recognize realities. Some realities horrify me, and some do not, but I accept that I was not created so that others might gratify me and delight me with all that they think and do – what a turgid life that would be,” Morrissey said. “I’ve been offended all of my life, and it has strengthened me, and I am glad. I wouldn’t have the journey any other way. Only by hearing the opinions of others can we form truly rational views, and therefore we must never accept a beehive society that refuses to reflect a variety of views.”

He then called back to other non-conformist music legends, including the Sex Pistols, David Bowie, the Ramones, and Alice Cooper.

“…no one saw these monoliths coming, therefore the people discovered them before the industry had time to halt the fun. Now, alas, music cannot happen unless it adheres to strict industry guidelines, and this falsely assures the listening public that things could not possibly be better than they currently are.”

So, not really Far Right, just a truth-teller, then. Which definitely confirms he ain’t Far Left, either. Later in the piece, Morrissey declares his intention to stay out of politics altogether, which represents a most refreshing change from the usual run of entertainment-industry super-duper-genii.

Righteous shoot redux

Been halfway hunting around for the unexpurgated vid of the takedown of a feral niglet trying to rob everybody in a Mex restaurant in Houston with a fake gun, but no joy.

Until now.


Bill follows up:

The usual suspects are whining about the number of shots the hero expended into the armed robber, but the solution to that is to revise the law, not blame the shooter for protecting himself and the folks around him. Anyway, nobody ever prosecutes cops for shooting till their magazines are empty, even if the victim ends up looking like a pile of hamburger.

To which I responded in comments thusly:

BUT…BUT…BUT…BUT…why didn’t he just shoot the gun out of his haaaannnd?

Oh, how I just LOVE getting advice on proper use of firearms from people who have never even been in the same room with a gun, much less fired one, much less in a stress-shoot situation against a lawless, feral predator exhibiting malicious intentions towards them. Idiots.

Nice find, Bill. The feel-good video of the year.

And it surely is. Let the candy-ass Progtard hoplophobes and the “parents” of this no-longer-dangerous Dindu weep and wail away; for me, it’s exactly as the original poster of the vid said: Fuck around, find out. Kid didn’t wanna get his sorry ass ventilated, he shoulda stayed the hell home and kept away from better men than he’ll ever be. It was HIS decision to take a toy gun and do a little wil’in’ out ‘n’ sheeit, and his alone. Didn’t work out the way he thought it would, and that’s entirely on him. Tough shit for you, punk.

FREEDOM!!!

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."
Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
Bill Whittle
